happy solstice

Thank you for supporting moth and squirrel this year. Yesterday Kate and I braved the cold to finish farmers' market with my best day ever. Turns out 5degrees is the perfect temperature for selling wool hats. I feel like a lucky grizzly bear who rambled into one last patch of berries before hibernating. I do believe I will make it through the winter.

Speaking of grizzlies, Steeb and I have been snowed in watching a David Attenborough series on mammals. It is inspiring me for a new round of stuffed critters. I'm thinking more horns, marsupials, and really celebrating the creatures who have adapted as well as humans. Nature is awesome. Did you know that raccoons can basically "see" with their hands? The information they receive from their sensitive paws helps them construct a mental map of their surroundings about as accurately as we can with our eyes. whoa.

I will be at the Farmers' Market Dec 20

We won't ride our bicycles,but we will be set up indoors for the last market 10am-3pm. It should be sunny and sparkly and winter magical. Wool hats, fingerless mits, stuffed animals, ornaments, little gifts galore and of coarse plenty of tasty Spincyle yarn.

baby it's cold outside

Thanks to everyone who stopped by my booth in seattle and portland. Urban Craft Uprising was totally awesome and made me believe the economy is going to be okay. Golden snowflakes go to those rugged stumptowners who braved the wind and snow to see us at Crafty Wonderland. Because it is still storming up here in Bellingham I will probably not be at the farmers market this saturday. You can still shop, Bluebottle in Seattle and The Business in Anacortes. In Bellingham I have goodies at One of One on State Street,the farm stand on Railroad Ave, and The Paperdoll.
